I will note that you need to use Devuan ASCII, Beowulf will not let you upgrade properly. I have not extensively gone through to test features, I will post if I run into any issues.

Steps:
1. Install sysv init system
2. Reboot
3. Install WICD (this is temporary, and unnecessary if you know how to use wpa_supplicant)
4. Stop NetworkManager, and start WICD (or wpa and dhcpcd)
5. Purge systemd (this will also remove mate, lightdm, and networkmanager)
6. Change /etc/apt/sources.list from the default debian repo to deb.devuan.org/merged and change Jessie to ASCII
7. Apt update and install devuan keyring, by running 'apt-get --allow-unauthenticated' (there must be a better way to do this, but I don't know it)
8. Apt upgrade
9. Install NetworkManager, lightdm, and whatever de or wm you want

Zachir999,

Interested in trying this Devuan install:

Wondering if there are any additional insights, caveats or suggestions that have raised their little heads since posting this tutorial?  Thanks in advance for your reply!
So, one big caveat is that NetworkManager does not work, in Devuan ASCII. At least, I could never get it to, so I've been using WPA_supplicant, although WICD should also still work.
